Excellent hotel. Superb location. Excellent staff. Great value. My wife and I had never been in Nantes before and so I booked purely on the basis of Tripadvisor comments and the general hotel online brochure. We could not have been more pleased. Every aspect of the hotel was more than we had hoped. If we go back to Nantes, Hotel... More

We had the standard room, which was well designed and nice. Location was good, everything could be reached by foot. The staff was very friendly. I was very satisfied with the price for the anniversary offer by Oceania. We didn't try the breakfast.

Second Oceania hotel stayed in during travelling in France with family. An excellent location in central Nantes, although as others have written driving in the city centre is a nightmare and you need a code to get through the barriers. The staff were extremely helpful and guided us up to the hotel and into the very narrow hotel car park... More

This hotel has recently undergone a complete renovation. The rooms are absolutely perfect, with a nice bathroom, large and comfortable bed with duvet, good breakfast, polite & helpful staff. I totally recommended this hotel which is very affordable into the bargain.

No parking, small & dark room, patio view, no hangers, no cupboard, no coffee facilities... The nearest parking is half kilometer away and you have to walk up along a steepy street to get to the hotel. Morever, it was raining...No words! The shower room was big and comnfortable. It´s the best

Dear Maria Teresa, our hotel does have a parking, hangers, cupboards and coffee facilities. The nearest parking is at the corner of the street just behind Nantes's splendid 18e century Opera, we can only conclude that you mistook Oceania Hotel de France with another one.
